Future Developments For the latest information about developments related to Form 8038-R, such as legislation enacted after they were published, go to www.irs.gov/Form8038R. What’s New Claims for recovery of overpayments cannot be filed later than the date that is 2 years after (1) the date that is 60 days after the final computation date of the issue to which the payment relates; or (2) with respect to the portion of the overpayment paid more than 60 days after the final computation date, the date that the payment was made to the United States. See Rev. Proc. 2017-50, which is on page 234 of Internal Revenue Bulletin 2017-37 at www.irs.gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb17-37.pdf. General Instructions Note: Use a separate Form 8038-R for each issue. Purpose of Form Form 8038-R is used by issuers of state and local bonds to request a refund of amounts paid with Form 8038-T, Arbitrage Rebate, Yield Reduction, and Penalty in Lieu of Arbitrage Rebate. Payments made with Form 8038-T that may be recoverable include: 1. Yield reduction payments, 2. The arbitrage rebate to the United States, 3. A penalty in lieu of rebating arbitrage to the United States, or 4. A penalty to terminate the election to pay a penalty in lieu of rebating arbitrage. Recovery of Overpayment In general, an issuer may recover an overpayment of rebate for an issue of bonds by establishing to the IRS that the overpayment occurred. An overpayment is the excess of the amount paid to the United States for an issue under section 148 over the sum of the rebate amount for the issue as of the most recent computation date and all amounts that are otherwise required to be paid under section 148 as of the date the recovery is requested. An overpayment may be recovered only to the extent that a recovery on the date that it is first requested wouldn’t result in an additional rebate amount if that date were treated as a computation date. Except for overpayments of penalty in lieu of rebate under section 148(f)(4)(C)(vii) and Regulations section 1.148-7(k), an overpayment of less than $5,000 may not be recovered before the final computation date. See Regulations section 1.148-3(i). The amount of rebate overpayment is based on the amount actually paid, not the future value of the amount paid. Note: Regulations section 1.148-3(b) provides that as of any date, the rebate amount for an issue is the excess of the future value, as of that date, of all receipts on nonpurpose investments over the future value, as of that date, of all payments on nonpurpose investments. The definitions of payments and receipts in Regulations section 1.148-3(d), in part, require inclusion of transactions (including, but not limited to, acquisition, earnings, and return of principal) on a date for each nonpurpose investment. Any cash flow representation to the contrary may result in the understatement of rebate amount. Yield reduction payments are determined using payments and receipts as described in Regulations section 1.148-5(b)(1). Processing the Request When filing Form 8038-R, you must provide: • All copies of Form(s) 8038-T related to the request for refund, and • The computations of the overpayment and interest (if any) on line 17. The computations must show all cash flows from the issue date to the computation date reflecting the overpayment (for example, if a series of reports were prepared, all such reports must be provided, unless the last report details all cash flows). Provide any additional attachments if needed. Generally, this information will be sufficient to determine whether a refund is appropriate. For refund claim rejections where there is a procedural deficiency or where an issuer has failed to provide sufficient information to enable a determination that an overpayment occurred, the IRS will contact the issuer or its representative to resolve the deficiency. If all the requested information isn’t timely received, a letter will be sent explaining that the request for recovery is deficient and that its processing is rejected. For refund claim denials, in full or in part, if the IRS makes a preliminary determination to deny a refund claim, the IRS will notify the issuer in writing that it may submit additional information or participate in a conference, or both. Additional information must be submitted within 21 days of the request for additional information or the conference. If the issuer fails to submit additional information or if the IRS disagrees that an overpayment occurred, the IRS will send the issuer a registered or certified letter denying the claim, subject to the issuer's appeal rights. The procedures for processing a request for refund are detailed in Rev. Proc. 2008-37, which is on page 137 of Internal Revenue Bulletin 2008-29 at www.irs.gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb08-29.pdf as modified by Rev. Proc. 2017-50. An issuer is entitled to appeal a refund claim denial. See Rev. Proc. 2006-40, which is on page 694 of Internal Revenue Bulletin 2006-42 at www.irs.gov/pub/irs-irbs/irb06-42.pdf, for details.

Note: By authorizing a person other than an authorized officer of the issuer to communicate with the IRS and whom the IRS may call for more information with respect to this return, the issuer authorizes the IRS to communicate directly with the individual listed in line 9 and consents to the disclosure of the issuer’s return information to that individual, as necessary, in order to process this return.

However, check the box if the issue was outstanding prior to July 1, 1993, and the issuer has elected not to apply the 1992 regulations; the current Regulations sections 1.148-1 through 1.148-11 apply.

If the issuer wishes to authorize the IRS to communicate directly with a person who is a representative of the entity listed on line 21, check the box and enter the name and telephone number of such person. Note: By authorizing a person other than an authorized officer of the issuer to communicate with the IRS and whom the IRS may contact with respect to this return, the issuer authorizes the IRS to communicate directly with the individual entered in line 22 and consents to disclose the issuer's return information to that individual, as necessary, in order to process this return.

Note: If authority is granted in line 9 or line 22 for the IRS to communicate with a person other than an officer of the issuer, by signing this form, the issuer's authorized representative consents to the disclosure of issuer's return information, as necessary to process this return, to such person.

About the Corporate Income Tax
The IRS and most states require corporations to file an income tax return, with the exact filing requirements depending on the type of company.
Sole proprietorships or disregarded entities like LLCs are filed on Schedule C (or the state equivalent) of the owner's personal income tax return, flow-through entities like S Corporations or Partnerships are generally required to file an informational return equivilent to the IRS Form 1120S or Form 1065, and full corporations must file the equivalent of federal Form 1120 (and, unlike flow-through corporations, are often subject to a corporate tax liability).
Additional forms are available for a wide variety of specific entities and transactions including fiduciaries, nonprofits, and companies involved in other specific types of business.
